The man currently in the interim role of chief executive of Preston City Council looks set to be made permanent.


Adrian Phillips has survived an interview stage and is set to be rubber-stamped by councillors.

Full council will meet on Thursday 18 April to hear the recommendation.

A cross-party recruitment committee were involved in the role which was only advertised interally.

Reports to the city council say only one person, Mr Phillips, was invited to interview from the shortlist.

Mr Phillips is due to be offered a salary between £93,636 to £98,838, and gets 32 days holiday per year.

He has worked for the city council for 33 years and prior to becoming interim chief executive was the director of environment.
